They should continue living normal lives and being a normal couple and being awesome.

This show is awesome. Season premiere was hilarious. Was cracking up the whole way through. Really stoked on the rest of the season now.

I really liked that episode smile Several really funny moments that made me laugh...there's another man living inside him...

Also that Community show after was really good, good enough to watch next week again. I loved when the indian guy started doing Breakfast Club.

This thread needs to be bumped after that MSPC arc.

It was amazing and I feel like the show got more life breathed back into it, and it's been great... That was one of the best strings of episodes, um, ever. The fallout of tonight's episode was great too. It's been hilarious and really, really interesting and just amazing stuff for the characters... I never would have thought that the combination of Michael, Pam, and Ryan could have been so amazing.

Very true. I thought the show was getting a bit stale somewhere in the middle of the season (in particular, I remember being surprised at how low on laughs the post-super bowl 1-hour special was) but the Michael Scott Paper Company storyline was SO well done. Haven't laughed so much at a TV show in ages!

And then the season finale (company picnic) was a riot, and the season premiere last night was solid too.

Jim and Pam are boring though. Sorry. I honestly thought Michael's relationship with Holly was more entertaining.

The third wheel is what makes it a tricycle.

I like Jim and Pam frown
Holly and Michael were great though, they had the same level of oddness. But it's in the same way that Jim and Pam have the same sense of humour.

Hey I love Jim and Pam. But I agree I think Michael and Holly's story ended so sadly. I like that Michael still has hope though.

Okay, Michael was the biggest asshole that I've ever seen during this last episode. I don't remember him being this insensitive ever before.

That's all I really remember from that episode. hmpf

I thought the whole thing was really great. I really did enjoy most of the antics and the whole thing flowed nicely to me. It got a little too meta at the end of for my tastes, but the ending was so sweet and heartwarming that I left it feeling pretty good anyway, so it wasn't like it was a big problem. Really enjoyable.

I thought that episode was really sweet. I'm glad they finally got married. The ending where they were all dancing was sort of random -though Dwight kicking that girl in the face was classic-. And I just thought the whole scene with the veil and the tie was romantic and charming.

my only real beef with the episode was the dancing was way too meta, and even if they did do that, it's just too unrealistic to only have coworkers dancing instead of everyone at the wedding, but the actual nuptuals were done well

I don't blame her, if Michael Scott was sleeping with YOUR mom how would you react?  Also, she is pregnant and that probably just adds more stress.

She was throwing a tantrum for half of the episode. Even if it's Michael and somewhat justified, that's hardly Pam of old and I'd hold her to a much higher standard than I would Michael, hormones aside.

She was grating and unpleasant to watch. The rest of the episode though? Totally hysterical and I still love Jim.

Alright, I'm up to speed:

It is gross. Pity her acting seemed entirely out of character and over the top - even beyond pregnancy and hormonal craziness. I could see how those lines could have been delivered in a more empathetic/ humorous manner. Jim was great. Pam's screaming, childlike reaction was more akin to something I'd expect from Kelly. Or Michael.

Hated it. That episode seemed like it was written by someone who's never seen The Office. Almost everything about it felt wrong. Blah.

Agree. Part one was better than two, but even so - too schmaltzy and unrealistic. Too many googly moments between Jim and Pam, lacked the careful subtlety you'd expect from The Office. Phyllis and Bob Vance's wedding was far, far better.

I liked last night's episode, especially Dwight reading Michael's letter of recomendation.  Will Ferrell's side story didn't really go anywhere, not sure how the show will carry on without Carrell

I'm still amazed at how I don't really consider this show as one I just have to watch, yet I've become so close to the characters over the years, they did Michael's goodbye so well it was quite sad frown

I loved Michael laughing after he gave Oscar his gift. That came out of nowhere.

When Jim is talking with Michael in his office I was in tears. I don't like how they're making Will Ferrell's character an idiot just so we won't feel bad when he doesn't return, which at this point you know he won't. And hey I'm going to Boulder for college, maybe I'll see Michael and Holly!

The last few years of Office were mostly just blah to me, but The Proposal episode totally redeemed itself. It would have been a beautiful series finale with Michael finally getting together with his love Holly and the audience left to ponder what became of The Office.

But nooo NBC had to crap all over that and get greedy and say THIS MUST NOT END!! MONEYMAKER!! The Proposal episode was actually the last episode I saw, I don't care to watch any after that because for me that was the last episode. Just like when Zach Braff's character left Scrubs. Really? You're gonna eliminate the main character and still call the show by the same name? Yeah I stopped watching that show when they did that too. These networks really irritate me because they don't know when to quit, they either go on too long or cancel too quickly.

I don't know, the last episode with Michael slowly saying goodbye to everyone was really sweet. That was more like the whole 'JD leaves Sacred Heart' type thing you're talking about. Seeing different people's reaction to him going, the near miss at the end, it was all pretty awesome except for the very last part with Will's character having a spaz..

*Randi's insightful rant-ish proclamation about the networks*

That pretty much sums it up, I feel the same. There are some shows that ended at its prime. And there's those that stopped too late, or haven't even stopped yet.

Maybe it's because I watched the whole series really fast recentyl (as in within a month) instead of over the years, but I feel like the quality of the show has barely diminished. It's surely not as great as it once was, but it's still decent enough to remain on the air, I think, and I also think that the supporting cast other than Carell is strong enough to carry the series, at least for a while. The Office is still 100% better than any of NBC's other shows, anyway.

I used to be a huge supporter of Jim and Pam, but they have grown incredibly annoying to me since they got married. The ones that carry that show are Dwight, Andy, Creed, Kevin, and Ryan (and Kelly when she is involved with Ryan). And the only one of those wo even has face time comparable with Michael is Dwight. Sooo...yeah I give it a year before this show gets canned.

I still like Jim and Pam.  I just think we are seeing too much of "mommy" Pam.  Shes annoying.  Really, they don't act all that different from when they weren't together.

I don't know about it ending in a year.  I think it really depends on who they bring in as the boss.  Could really push new life into the show.  Then again, I've always found Michael to be the most annoying character and have been hoping he would leave since... season 1.  I'll admit he has been less grating in the later seasons.  I used to think that there is no way a company would keep a guy like that, but then I started working for my principal and superintendent.... I guess incompetence is over looked now-a-days.

Josh - As far as other NBC shows being bad, do you watch Community or Parks and Rec?  Community is pretty good.  Episodes can be hit or miss (for me) but when they hit, they are great.  Though Parks and Rec had a HORRIBLE first season (seriously hated every second of it), since then every episode is hilarious.  This season I have "lol'd" more than I have any other show.

The newest Office episode was great, made me laugh out loud a lot. Even if you think the character development has gone bad or any of that, the show is still blatantly hilarious.

Amy, have seen an episode or two of both and neither did anything for me. 30 Rock is the other NBC show that everybody I know seems to think is hysterical and I've seen several episodes of that and not laughed out loud a single time. I don't think it's that the jokes are particularly bad, the style and execution just doesn't do it for me.
I'll probably give all three shows another chance in the future though.

Josh, I don't find 30 Rock to be all that great either.  I feel a slight misguided urge to watch it now that my brother works there (the location, not the show.)  I guess I'm still waiting to get the joke.

I liked the episode where Dwight was made boss.  Great that they changed the opening credits to include Dwight moving his "toy" as Michael did his Dundee.  So glad to hear from Moze, even if it was just a scream!  Thought that part was hilarious.  This episode really brought back the hi-jinks between Dwight and Jim that had kinda fizzled out, and I am glad that Jim gave Dwight the props he deserved at the end.  Nuts as Dwight may be, he loves the company and the job and I know he would make a very efficient boss.  

When Dwight got the holster, it reminded me of when Angela gave him the Dwight Bobblehead.  Same reaction.  I seriously miss them being together.  

I think next week is the season finale?  I know they are going to bring in a bunch of guest stars to make us wonder about the new boss, but I REALLY WISH we could get one episode where Creed is the boss.  He is.... awesome.  Heres hoping they reference it with some clips or maybe do a webisode of it.  

Finally, I know Will Arnett is up for "the new boss."  I think he would be great at it.  I don't think he can carry a show on his own, (like the one on Fox that was cancelled) but this cast is so strong it would put him more in an Arrested Development type of situation.  Yes GOB, you can be the new boss.  

Besides, if it is going to be one of the people they have been showing clips of, he is the only one that makes sense.   All the other guys that are popping up for the interviews are kinda... mega famous.  Except for James Spader.  Don't get me wrong, I think of him as mega famous, but I don't think he is getting movie rolls like say, Jim Carrey is right now.

Ugh: I just did a little searching for what the buzz is about who will take over.  If they person the web is saying is true.  Yuck.

Really? Will Arnett is a possibility? That would be...beyond words.
I also like James Spader (absolutely HILARIOUS on Boston Legal), although not sure how he would fit The Office.

Where are these interview videos you're talking about?
